Your Hunter Valley Wedding Planner

23 Mar

10th Edition Celebration

Last night we were invited to celebrate the 10th edition of Your Hunter Valley Wedding Planner alongside Sueellyn Connolly and her wonderful team.

Suellyn married in the Hunter Valley in 2005 and saw a gap in the market for a wedding magazine to help local and destination brides plan their perfect day, so, Your Hunter Valley Wedding Planner was created.

Wandin Valley Estate provided the venue, food and wine. GG Events treated us to a perfectly styled event, A La Mode created gorgeous floral arrangements and Hello Naomi put together a dessert table to die for with display pieces provided by Lily & Bramwell.

Even though we were there to celebrate we were also there for a good cause – Heal for Life Foundation, an organisation that helps people who have been through childhood trauma and abuse. Businesses throughout the Hunter Valley generously donated prizes to be raffled and auctioned off which allowed Suellyn and her team to raise enough funds to put 10 people through the Heal for Life program.

We  had a wonderful evening catching up with and meeting new people, it truly was a night to remember for the wedding world!

The Wedding Parlour

We are Melissa & Amy, two sisters who are just mad about weddings!

In our daily lives we work at The Sweetest Things. Amy is the Store Manager, IT guru and trainee cake decorator. Me – inbetween looking after my 6 month old son I am the Business Coordinator and caretaker of things thrown in the too hard basket.

Our world has centred around weddings for as long as we can remember! During the early days of The Sweetest Things mum would bring home wedding magazines that Amy and I devoured from cover to cover and then plan out our far in to the future wedding days from the gown right through to the Thank You cards.

From our love of weddings we have come together to create The Wedding Parlour. This blog is our little place to share with you a collective of all things wedding – from the latest gowns down the runway to venues, floral designers and more, plus we will check in with Amy on her progress as a trainee cake decorator from time to time.

For our first post we approached Carla Burrell, Editor of WHITE Magazine to share how the magazine was created and give us a sneak peak into the latest edition hitting stands today.

We truly hope all you gorgeous couples planning your big day enjoy The Wedding Parlour. We look forward to sharing our love of all things wedding with you.

Carla Burrell, Editor WHITE Magazine: Insight to the creation of WHITE & sneak peak of the latest edition

WHITE was born from a desire to inspire couples getting married to focus on what is most important… their relationship. Many couples are going into marriage with unmanageable debt, stress and fragmented relationships. WHITE asks the hard questions and subtly weaves a relationship focus through everything, inspiring creativity and personality back into weddings.

Issue 15 our autumn edition is out today and is full of lovely surprises. Read about incorporating Culture and Heritgal into your wedding day, learn about family heirlooms and find one to use yourself. Theme your wedding day with one of our four themes just like the one featuring a gorgeous cake by The Sweetest Things and get serious with some down-to-earth honest relationship advice.
